It's no story that "That 70's Show" was one of the best of it's time. With it's hilarious and realistic antics, most teenagers and college students can deeply relate to it. College is more than crazy. It's filled with confusion, discovery, risk taking, adventure and lots of tears. Most days you'll wake up, more confused than that time you forgot to study for the math test you knew nothing on. Some may say it's indescribable but this show did it without even trying. This is college life as told by "That 70's Show"
Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.
There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?
So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.
If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?
If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.
Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.
Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!
There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.
Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.
You'd be lying if you're a college student and said you didn't relate to Panic! At the Disco's iconic hits. Like, Panic! has probably got you covered with a song that describes every day of your week, nonetheless the five hundred moods you go through in that one week. Because let's be real, our happiness turns to stress as quickly as our iPhones skip from "High Hopes" to "Dying in LA."
Here are the six best to describe that typical week, though, in my opinion:
Monday: "Dying in LA"
If Monday mornings had background music, it would be to this song. Except for the fact, you're not dying in LA, but dying in your dorm room because your alarm has gone off for the fifth time in a row, and you realize you have to get out of bed and go to class. Sigh.
Tuesday: "High Hopes"
Look at that — you went from "Dying in LA" to having "High Hopes" for the rest of the week!!! And for that typical Tuesday exam you probably have today. Yay, let me just go fake it 'till I make it with my ridiculously high hopes for passing this thing.
What an anthem to listen to when you see that somehow, someway, you passed that exam, got that paper in, and attended three club meetings! Maybe this week won't be as bad as you thought... Now it's almost time to "turn up the crazy" because "tonight we are victorious"!!
Thursday: "Old Fashioned"
Ah, the week is finally chilling out. Fewer exams, fewer papers, fewer assignments. Time to remember my youth as the best of times... because it's Thursday, and I'm pretending all those panic attacks over my grades and all-nighters with my textbook (literally 24 hours) totally didn't happen.
Friday: "Hey Look Ma, I Made It"
Classes are done. The weekend is here. Deep breath. Call the fam. Tell them I passed that exam, and I made it through another typical college week. Yay me!
Saturday: "Saturday Night"
Time to go have some fun, while we all pretend that stress doesn't exist LOL!
I stand corrected. The moment Panic! At the Disco writes a song about laying in bed watching Netflix all day, then they will have a song that perfectly describes every day in the week of a typical college student. Regardless, though, you can still catch me panicking at the disco with this relatable jams!
